Join us for a stay in a king bed room with a Downtown Disney District view at Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel.
If you prefer a video tour over photos, you’ll find that here:
In the entryway is a set of four hooks, perfect for hanging purses and jackets.
There are square lights on the ceiling.
An alcove to the left of the entrance is perfect for storing luggage out of the way.
Past the alcove is the closet and attached coffee bar. The closet doors have two full-length mirrors on the front.
There’s a light inside. It holds the ironing board, a themed laundry bag, and luggage rack. The iron is on the low shelf with extra bedding and the safe is built into the inner wall.
The coffee bar has a marble top. There’s a Keurig coffee machine.
The drawer holds coffee supplies.
The fridge is behind a metal lattice-front door.
The fridge itself has a glass door.
Across from the closet is the bathroom. There’s no door to the vanity area.
The light of the large mirror can be controlled with a dimmer switch next to the towel rack.
There are two sinks. Standard H2O+ toiletries are available. There’s a shelf above the sinks.
A magnifying mirror, also illuminated, pulls out from the wall.
There are two cubbies beneath the sinks, where the hairdryer and spare toilet paper is stored.
A wood step stool, with a Mickey head cutout on the sides, is on the floor.
There’s also a basket for towels and trash can.
A sliding door leads to the toilet and shower.
Above the toilet is vertical artwork of Chip and Dale picking oranges. The wallpaper has a pattern of circles, with the ocassional hidden Mickey.
The shower has a swinging glass door and a seat inside.
There are short stripes of brown tile work on the shower wall. The shampoo, conditioner, and body wash aren’t mounted on the wall — they sit on a small corner shelf.
There’s a detachable square showerhead and a rainfall showerhead on the ceiling. A handle on the wall switches between the two.
Back in the bedroom, there is up lighting lining the room’s ceiling.
There’s a marble top desk and wooden chair. The marble matches the coffee bar.
A mirror and outlets are above the desk.
There is a stained glass dome desk light.
The TV is mounted above a marbeltop dresser with six drawers.
There are more outlets on the wall above the dresser.
This artwork is on the wall next to the bed.
It depicts the iconic moment when Walt, sitting on a bench by the carousel of Griffith Park, came up with the idea of Disneyland. He wanted a place where kids (like his daughters he was visiting the park with) and adults could have fun.
The bedding is white with a flower pattern exclusive to the hotel.
There’s a wooden headboard with built-in reading lights.
The reading lights have built-in dimmers.
Panels to the sides of the bed depict orange trees, with branches that extend into the wallpaper above the bed.
Chip and Dale are also picking oranges among these branches.
There are two end tables, each with a drawer and cubby. Outlets are built into the tree panels.
There’s plenty of room for more luggage storage under the bed.
There’s hardwood floor at the entrance, and carpet in the bedroom. The carpet is green with subtle red chevrons.
There’s a red and orange armchair, with a standing stained glass lamp next to it.
Cutout artwork of Bambi is above the chair.
The chair folds out into a small bed.
Above the sofa are three retro orange advertisements packed full of Disney references.
This piece is for Retlaw California Oranges, “grown and packed with care by the J.B. Lindquist companies.” Retlaw is Walter backwards and J.B. Lindquist is a reference to Jack Lindquist, who was an employee of Disney for almost 40 years and president of Disneyland Park in the early ’90s.
This ad references Silver Lake and Buena Vista. The Walt Disney Studio was originally in Silver Lake, California. The current studios are on Buena Vista Street in Burbank.
Finally, this ad is for Hyperion Fruit. The Walt Disney Studio was on Hyperion Ave. in the ’20s and ’30s. The name Hyperion continues to be used in Disney Parks and departments today.
The sofa has a wooden frame with a handle at the top to fold it down into another bed.
More Bambi artwork is above the bed, in the back of the sofa.
Thumper is napping in a log.
Bambi and his mother are sleeping in the center.
And flower is yawning among the roots of a tree.
The curtains in front of the balcony doors feature large white flowers.
The balcony has two iron chairs and a table.
The chairs have green and tan striped cushions.
A green wall separates the balconies.
Here’s our view of Downtown Disney District and Disneyland in the distance. We could see Space Mountain and Matterhorn.
We were right above World of Disney.
